Summary In recent decades, there has been a proliferation of higher-order multidimensional constructsin the management and psychology literatures. Unfortunately, few guidelines have been presentedfor assessing the appropriateness of these constructs. In the current paper, the authorspresent seven recommendations for evaluating the construct clarity of multidimensional constructs.As an example, these guidelines are applied to existing multidimensional constructs,such as core self-evaluation and work engagement. The guidelines presented in this paper providea roadmap for researchers interested in developing multidimensional constructs andidentifying aspects of existing multidimensional constructs that are in need of improvement.
